A healthy population is the greatest asset of a nation. People's health primarily depends upon the food available to them. Availability of good quality food to all in sufficient quantity has to be considered as an essential part of social justice. The quality of a food does not depend on its taste, colour or external appearance alone. It should also contain carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals, vitamins, etc. in the right proportion. These nutrients are essential for physical and mental development. Diet of our people is often not balanced. Protein deficiency is a main drawback in the diet of majority of our people. It is in this context that we have to realise the importance of including enough fish in our diet. Proper utilization of our available fishery resources will certainly help to solve this problem to a considerable extent.
